New Scholarship Announced
Dr. Tom Clemens, President of the Mt Gretna Arts Council, announced an expansion of the Arts Council Scholarship program with the addition of a $1000 Dale Grundon Memorial Scholarship for Photography. Dr. Clemens stated “Dale was a valued member of the council for decades most recently serving as Vice President. His twin loves of Mt Gretna and photography allowed him to document many events which he shared with the community. We will miss his presence in the community.
